I guess the timing question can in part be addressed by the tone of the email - if they'd acknowledged that it feels early, but hey, wouldn't you like to get ahead of the game - and perhaps even included an early-bird offer, you might not have felt it so inappropriate? (which I'm with you on, BTW, but also wouldn't have unsubscribed purely for that!) I'm just glad I don't work in an industry where I have to be shooting Christmas ad campaigns in July, or whatever!
Me too (makes me think of the Frasier episode where they are shooting their Christmas card photo!). Interestingly though (a blog post on this to come) I was at a training course last week where they were talking about monitoring Google trends to see when people start talking about certain topics - it looked like that for Christmas that was as early as September, so maybe M&S had it right all along..!
